(win or loss)

The subject of this vote was final passage of the 2004 agriculture appropriations bill which provided $77.5 billion in 2004 for crop subsidies, rural development, and nutrition programs. Progressives voted against final passage for several reasons. First, in their view, the bill did not contain enough funding for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program, a program which aims to improve water quality in agricultural areas. Second, the bill failed to include any money for the Wetlands Reserve Program, a program which seeks to protect wetland areas. Third, the bill prevented the Agriculture Department from issuing country-of-origin labels on meat products (see Roll Call Vote #354). Despite opposition from Progressives, the agriculture appropriations bill passed 347-64.
